The Graphic Design program at College of DuPage holds an annual event called Portfolio Night. This event allows each student completing the program to show off their hard work as well as individual design submissions. You can see the individual submissions from past Portfolio Nights in the Student Work Section of this page, or you check out some of the Event Photos.
Portfolio Night celebrates the work of students in the Graphic Design program. Students of the Portfolio Seminar class will be available to present and discuss their portfolio of work created in various classes throughout the program. Their original, creative work will range from a variety of graphic design work and illustrations, ad campaigns, and Web design. These are just some of the items that will be on display. Portfolio Night is also an exhibition of award-winning work!
Portfolio Night is a community event and is open to high school and college students, family, and friends. In addition, community residents, the business community, and anyone with the desire to view great work and learn more about some of the hottest career opportunities is welcome to attend.
In addition to viewing great student portfolios, the evening includes an awards ceremony, where College of DuPage Graphic Design students and DuPage County high school art and design students will receive awards and prizes. All first place, honorable mention, and finalist work will be displayed at the event. There will also be snacks and beverages available throughout the evening’s festivities.
